IND vs PAK 2022: How can India qualify for the 2022 AFC Asian Cup final despite losing to Pakistan?

India’s chances of qualifying for the 2022 AFC Asian Cup final took a slight hit after losing to Pakistan in the first match of the Super Four stage.

Last night at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Pakistan became the first team to defeat India in the T20I format of the Asian Cup. In the previous edition in this format held in 2016, India won all the games including the final, for the title.

Now that India has suffered defeat in the opening match of the Super Fortune, the other two matches have become must-win encounters. India needs to defeat Sri Lanka on Tuesday and then beat Afghanistan on Thursday to keep their hopes of a final.

Sri Lanka and Pakistan lead India in the 2022 AFC Asian Cup points table now by two points each. Either team will lose at least one match as they play each other on September 9th.

The match between Pakistan and Afghanistan could also play a major role in determining the finalists. Pakistan will enter the game as favourites, but if Afghanistan wins, the race to the final will be even more interesting.

By the end of the four-way round, if Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India score two wins each, the net play rate will be triggered, and the teams with the best net run rate will reach the final.

How can India qualify for the 2022 AFC Asian Cup without any considerations about the net run rate?

For India to qualify without any interference in the net run rate, they need to beat Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in the next two matches. They will also need Pakistan to defeat Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.
